Media Bias, What Media Bias?

Friday, March 26, 2010 \PM\.\Fri\.

Hattip to Michelle Malkin.  When it comes to the lamestream media, their bias in favor of the pro-aborts is so manifest as to be laughable.  The latest demonstration of this bias is to call pro-aborts “abortion rights supporters” and pro-lifers “abortion rights opponents”.  NPR has jumped on this bandwagon:

NPR News is revising the terms we use to describe people and groups involved in the abortion debate.

This updated policy is aimed at ensuring the words we speak and write are as clear, consistent and neutral as possible. This is important given that written text is such an integral part of our work.

On the air, we should use “abortion rights supporter(s)/advocate(s)” and “abortion rights opponent(s)” or derivations thereof (for example: “advocates of abortion rights”). It is acceptable to use the phrase “anti-abortion”, but do not use the term “pro-abortion rights”. Read the rest of this entry »

Hattip to the ever reticent lads and lasses at The Lair of the Catholic Cavemen.  My plaudits to the young lady.  Balancing 15 books on her head, reciting pi to the 100th digit and solving a rubik’s cube is much more difficult and entertaining than most of the “watch me!” videos posted on Youtube.  Youtube will allow us all to achieve the 15 minutes of fame predicted by Warhol, but rarely in as amusing a fashion as this video.

Do Not Date Shapeshifters!

From the only reliable source of news on the net, the Onion.  Hmmm, well my opinion is that all men and women should not date shapeshifters, robots or androids, especially if they come from the future.  This giving relationship advice thing is a snap!  Maybe I should start a “Dear Don” column here at AC and offer solutions to relationship dilemmas.  Let me try offering another piece of relationship advice.  If your date insists on finishing up a blog post, you must be understanding and patient, unless he or she exceeds the one hour keeping a date waiting rule.  Ha!  How easy this is!
